Hi Ruth! Warm welcome to C&NN Connect. I'm glad you found us and hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups. Our Natural Teachers Network will probably interest you, among others. I'm so glad you joined the Let's G.O. group and contributed. I look forward to learning much more about what you're up to and hope you likewise find this forum a rich source of resources. Hope to see you here again soon. Cheers!

Hi Ruth, The Earth Day Fun Festival in Atlanta sounds great!


There is such a great response to Let’s G.O.! that we are wanting to create a flow of information to make it easy for people to find and read about events.


We are hoping to consolidate the discussions into these three main areas:

“How are you Planning to Play, Serve, Celebrate?”

“How did your Let’s G.O.! Get Outside event go?

“Let’s Go Get Media Attention”


So in the spirit, I am hoping you will be willing to help us out by doing the following  two things:


1) Register this event on the Let's G.O.! site at the link below– if you haven’t already.




2) Add the information you posted about the festival as a reply to the discussion question “How are you planning to Play, Serve, Celebrate? “ and then remove it as an actual discussion.   Hope this makes sense.  I am not sure of the date of  your event because I could not open the flyer.


I know this is asking for more of your time so know it is really appreciated!  Please email me with any questions.  Thanks!  Avery
